(PHILLY VOICE) – If you happened to walk through LOVE Park on Friday afternoon, you weren’t tripping if you saw an alligator.
Visitors at the Center City park were surprised by the unexpected appearance of an emotional support gator, who splashed around in the spray ground and appears to have thoroughly enjoyed the fine mist.
Britt Miller was taking a walk with her baby daughter when she saw the commotion in the park. “We were just walking by LOVE Park and saw this kid playing with an alligator in the fountain,” Miller said. “Of course, there was a ton of people around taking pictures. The girl (who had the alligator) seemed to be with her family, who were sitting off to the side. They were super friendly. People were picking up the alligator, petting it, all sorts of stuff.”
